Description

In September 2008 the Great Financial Crisis, triggered by the collapse of Lehman brothers, shook the world. A decade later its spectre still haunts us. As the appalling scope and scale of the crash was revealed, the financial institutions that had symbolised the West’s triumph since the end of the Cold War, seemed – through greed, malice and incompetence – to be about to bring the entire system to its knees. ‘Crashed’ is a brilliantly original and assured analysis of what happened and how we were rescued from something even worse – but at a price which continues to undermine democracy across Europe and the United States.
